Print “Buffers” and Short Lines 

Dear Cathleen, 

I own an Apple He, Pkaso interface card, and Oki- 
data 92 printer. My computer locks up while the 
printer is working. I must wait for a document to 
finish printing before I can work on another. My 
friend, who has an Apple lie and an Epson printer, 
can print one document while he edits another. 
What can I do to achieve the same result? 

In addition, no matter how I set my characters per 
inch, I am unable to get more than 80 characters on 
a printed line. I can change the size of the charac¬ 
ters, but if I make the characters smaller, I end up 
with 80 characters on the line and a wide right mar¬ 
gin. My documents print correctly on the Epson 
and Apple printers at school, but not on my Okida- 
ta at home. 

Melanie Kitchner 
Wyndmoor, Pennsylvania 

[Ed: The communications between one’s computer 
and one’s printer is more complex than many peo¬ 
ple realize. When you tell AppleWorks to print a 
document, the computer transmits only the first 
character of that document. The printer prints that 
character and then sends a message to the com¬ 
puter saying that it is ready for the next character. 
The computer does not send the second character 
until the first one is printed. 

Some printer manufacturers (e.g., Toshiba, the 
maker of the ImageWriter II) put memory in the 
printer so it can memorize the characters to be 
printed. The printer stores the characters in mem¬ 
ory and immediately sends a message back to the 
computer saying the text was printed. If the print¬ 
er has a enough memory, the computer will send 
the complete document to the printer and then is 
free to run AppleWorks while the printer outputs 
your document. 


The National AppleWorks Users Group (NAUG) is an 
association that supports AppleWorks users.The group 
provides technical support and information about Apple- 
Works and enhancements to that program. Our primary 
means of communicating with members is through the 
monthly newsletter entitled the AppleWorks Forum. 


This extra memory is called a “buffer” or “print 
buffer”. Your friend’s Epson printer apparently 
has a “buffer”; your Okidata does not. You have 
to wait until a document is printed before you can 
do other work. 

There are two ways to add a print buffer to your 
system. First, you can buy an external buffer. We 
use a 64K Microbuffer (Practical Peripherals) at 
the NAUG office and find it adds significantly to 
our productivity. 

NAUG also uses an Applied Engineering Ram- 
Works card as a print buffer. AppleWorks uses 
only 48K of every 64K of memory you add to your 
machine, and Applied Engineering figured out 
how to use the extra memory as a print buffer. The 
AW 2 Expander program that comes with the 
RamWorks card modifies AppleWorks so it can use 
the extra memory on the RamWorks card as a 
buffer. Once you modify AppleWorks with the AW 
2 Expander, AppleWorks stores its print output on 
the card and sends that output to the printer while 
you use your Apple for other work. 

Your problem printing more than 80 characters on 
a line is caused by your printer interface card set¬ 
ting. The correct printer interface card setting for 
the Pkaso card is Control-I ON (that is the number 
zero, not the letter “O”). Enter that setting and 
you should be able to print more than 80 charac¬ 
ters on each line. The correct settings for nine 
popular interface cards appeared in the April 
1987 issue of the AppleWorks Forum.]

Macro Users Group 

Dear Editor: 

I am writing to let you know about the AppleWorks 
Macro Users Group (A MUG). A MUG publishes 
a manual and a disk of macros that work with 
AutoWorks. We plan to translate these macros to 
make them compatible with UltraMacros.

[Ed: AutoWorks, one of the precursors to Time- 
Out UltraMacros, is an enhancement that adds 
macro capabilities to AppleWorks. AutoWorks 
costs $49.95from Beagle Bros. For more informa¬ 
tion about macros, see the article entitled “Get¬ 
ting Started with Macros” in this issue of the 
AppleWorks Forum.] 


Another Patch to Change 
the AppleWorks Cursor 

Dear NAUG, 

Here’s a tip that lets you change the flashing Apple- 
Works cursor to the Mousetext character “j”. I like 
this character because it always points to where 
your letters will appear when you type and to what 
will be deleted when you press the Delete Key. 

Follow these steps: 

1. Boot your system with the Utilities Disk or any 
other disk that has the file BASIC.SYSTEM 
and get into the BASIC language. 

2. Replace your BASIC disk with a copy of the 
AppleWorks Startup Disk. 

3. TypeBLOAD aplworks. system, TSYS,A$2000 
and press the Return Key. 

4. Type poke 11681,77 and press the Return Key. 

5. TypeBSAVE aplworks.system,tsys,a$2000 
and press the Return Key.

Pinpoint Spell Checker 

Dear Cathleen, 

NAUG’s review of TimeOut QuickSpell ( Apple- 
Works Forum, May 1988) is quite accurate. How¬ 
ever, some of the comments about Pinpoint’s Spell 
Checker left me confused. The author writes “... 
Spell Checker is so slow when operating on a stan¬ 
dard Apple lie ... that many typists lose characters 
as they type.” 

I find no relation between Spell Checker and typing. 
You can type as fast as AppleWorks allows. You 
won’t lose any characters because the Spell Checker 
isn’t activated until you press Solid-Apple-P. 

In addition, Pinpoint’s Spell Checker was not 
intended to check large documents. Pinpoint’s 
advertisements state it is good for short pieces and 
single words. Word checking with Spell Checker is 
quicker than QuickSpell if for no other reason than 
you can activate it with a single Solid-Apple-P. To 
invoke QuickSpell you must press Open-Apple- 
Escape and then a few more keystrokes. 

Don Prohaska 
California City, California 

[Ed: NAUG tested Pinpoint’s Spell Checker on a 
Apple He and confirmed the finding of lost char¬ 
acters while typing. The problem occurs after you 
use Spell Checker for the first time and then insert 
words into the middle of an existing document. 
NAUG originally reported this problem in a 
review of Pinpoint’s Spell Checker in the Decem¬ 
ber 1986 issue of the AppleWorks Forum. 

This problem did not occur when we used Spell 
Checker on either an Apple IIgs or a TransWarp- 
equipped Apple He.] 18

Advanced Techniques 

How to Transfer Files 
into AppleWorks — Part 1 

by Warren Williams 


This is the first of two articles on how to transfer data between Apple ITs and other comput¬ 
ers. This month, Dr. Williams describes how to transfer data from MS-DOS and CP/M sys¬ 
tems into AppleWorks. Next month he describes how to transfer data from non-MS-DOS 
laptop computers such as the Tandy 100,102, and 200. 


S ome of us live in a schizophrenic world. At 
home we enjoy the ease of using AppleWorks; 
at work we struggle with more complex, more 
powerful word processor, data base, and spread¬ 
sheet programs on MS-DOS machines. In this arti¬ 
cle, I describe how to transfer data files between 
these computers. Although I refer to MS-DOS sys¬ 
tems, the same techniques can be used to transfer 
data between CP/M computers and Apple IIs. 

These instructions apply to both desktop and laptop 
MS-DOS systems. 

What You Need 

You need telecommunications programs for both 
the Apple and MS-DOS systems. The communica¬ 
tions program for your Apple should be a ProDOS 
program such as Point-to-Point (Pinpoint Publish¬ 
ing), MouseTalk (United Software), CommWorks 
(PBI Software), ASCII Express (United Software), 
or any other ProDOS-based communications pro¬ 
gram. You can use any popular MS-DOS commu¬ 
nications program on your IBM-compatible; there 
are dozens of programs available for those systems. 
However, I prefer the simple communications 
modules built into the easy-to-use integrated pack¬ 
ages like Works (Microsoft Corp.) or First Choice 
(Software Publishing Co.). [Ed: A list of the 
addresses and telephone numbers for all vendors 
mentioned in this article appears on page 7], 

You also need a way to connect the two computers. 
If you have an Apple He, you need a communica¬ 
tions card and a cable to connect the two machines. 


You can use a Super Serial card in your He and the 
model SC817 Smart Cable produced by IQ Tech¬ 
nologies. The Smart Cable has all the plugs and 
switches necessary to connect two computers 
through their RS-232 ports. If you don’t have 
access to a Smart Cable, you can use either a 
“straight through” RS-232 cable with a device 
called a “null modem”, or a “null modem cable” to 
connect your two computers. These items should 
be available at any full-service computer store. 

If you have an Apple lie or IIgs, you need the 
cable usually used to connect your computer to an 
Image Writer I printer. 

Preparing Your Data File 

The computer industry has adopted a standard cod¬ 
ing scheme, called ASCII (pronounced ASK-ee), to 
represent data. AppleWorks, and most MS-DOS 
programs, can read and write ASCII files. The prob¬ 
lem is that the two systems use different disk drive 
mechanisms, so you cannot write your data as 
ASCII files on one system and read it with the other. 

To accomplish this transfer, you have to generate a 
file on the “sending” computer that represents all 
data in ASCII codes and then transfer those codes 
between computers. 

Unfortunately, every program uses different 
approaches to creating an ASCII file. Some pro¬ 
grams (e.g., AppleWriter) automatically store their 
files in ASCII codes. Others (e.g., AppleWorks) 
provide an option to write ASCII files on your data

disk. (In Apple Works, you “print” your file to an 
ASCII file on the disk.) 

You need to generate an ASCII (or “text”) file on 
the sending computer. Since the steps necessary to 
generate that file depend on the program you are 
using, those procedures are beyond the scope of 
this article. 

If you are preparing data for transfer into the Ap¬ 
ple Works word processor, you should generate an 
ASCII file without Return characters at the end of 
each line. 

Files prepared for export to an Apple Works data 
base should have the data from each category on a 
separate line. The data from the first record should 
be followed immediately by data for the next 
record. If a field in one of the records is empty, you 
should print a blank line to keep the number of 
lines the same for every record. For example, if 
you have a name and address data base, your 
ASCII file should look like the list in Figure 1. 


Most spreadsheet programs use different formulas 
and functions, so it is difficult to successfully 
transfer spreadsheet files between computers. 
However, you can try transferring your spreadsheet 
into Apple Works by preparing a DIF (Data Inter¬ 
change Format) file. A DIF file is an ASCII file 
organized in a manner designed for sharing infor¬ 
mation between programs. 

Preparing Your Computers 

Once you have prepared an ASCII file, you are 
ready to connect the computers and transfer the 
file. Follow these steps: 

1. Apple lie owners: Install a Super Serial Card in 
slot 2 and configure the card with the jumper 
block pointing to “Modem” and the switches set 
for 9600 baud, 8 bits, one stop bit, no parity. 
(The switch settings are as follows: Switch 1: 
Off Off Off On On On; Switch 2: On On On On 
On Off Off.) Then, use the Smart Cable or a 
straight-through RS-232 cable and null modem 
adapter to connect the serial ports on the two 
machines. 

Apple lie or IIgs owners: Connect the DB-25 
plug on the ImageWriter I cable into the serial 
port of the MS-DOS computer. Connect the oth¬ 
er end of the cable to the modem port on the 
Apple. 

2. Boot up telecommunications programs on both 
the MS-DOS and Apple computers. Examine 
the communications parameters available on 
each program and determine the fastest baud 
rate both programs offer. Typically, that is either 
4800 or 9600 baud. Configure both programs to 
communicate at that baud rate. 

3. You can set up the software to use any combi¬ 
nation of data bits, stop bits, and parity as long 
as both machines are configured to the same 
settings. Start by trying 8 bits, one stop bit, no 
parity. If that is not available on both systems, 
try 7 data bits, 1 stop bit, even parity. 

4. Put an AppleWorks data disk in one of your 
Apple disk drives and set the telecommunica¬ 
tions software so it is ready to receive a file and 
store that file on a disk. Most telecommunica¬ 
tions programs will ask you to enter a pathname 


AppleWorks Forum

Pages 






AdvancedTechniques.. . 


for this file. Enter the pathname in the format 

/diskname/filename. 

5. Tell the communications software in the MS- 
DOS machine to transmit the ASCII file to the 
Apple. 

The file should now be transmitted to the Apple 
computer and saved on your Apple Works disk. 
Some Apple communications programs require 
you to issue a “Save” command to 
save the file. Issue that command 
now. 

Using the File in AppleWorks 

Once the file is stored in ASCII 
characters on your AppleWorks data 
disk, you should read the file into 
AppleWorks and issue a Save Com¬ 
mand to store the file in AppleWorks 
format. Follow these steps: 

1. Boot up AppleWorks. 

2. At the Main Menu, select choice 
#1, “Add Files to the Desktop”. 

3. Indicate you want to create a new 
file for either the word processor, 
data base, or spreadsheet. 

4. Indicate the file is a text file on 
the disk. 

5. Enter the pathname of this file. 

6. If you are transferring a data base file, tell 
AppleWorks how many categories are in each 
record. 

7. Tell AppleWorks what name to assign to the 
new data file. 

AppleWorks will read the data disk. The dura¬ 
tion of this process depends on the size of the 
file you are transferring. 

8. If you are transferring data into an AppleWorks 
data base, issue an Apple-N command and 
change the AppleWorks default category names 
to more descriptive titles. 

9. Issue an Apple-S command to save the new 
AppleWorks file on the disk. 


The MS-DOS file should now be stored as an 
AppleWorks file on your AppleWorks data disk. 

Other Alternatives 

There are at least three other ways to transfer files 
from MS-DOS computers into AppleWorks. 

One approach is to use Cross-Works, a program 
specifically designed to transfer MS-DOS files into 
AppleWorks. Unlike other communica¬ 
tions products that require you to gener¬ 
ate and translate ASCII files, Cross- 
Works can directly transfer files 
between WordPerfect, dBASE III+, 
Lotus 1,2,3, and AppleWorks. The pack¬ 
age includes all necessary cables, data 
conversion, and communications pro¬ 
grams for both the MS-DOS and Apple 
computers. 

You can also use an Applied Engineer¬ 
ing PC Transporter card to convert 
ASCII files from MS-DOS formatted 
disks into Apple format. The PC Trans¬ 
porter comes with a utility program 
called “Transfer” for this purpose. The 
procedure is to use your MS-DOS soft¬ 
ware to generate an ASCII file and then 
use the Transfer program to write that 
file onto a ProDOS-formatted disk. 

A third alternative is to prepare the ASCII text file 
as described above, and send your MS-DOS data 
disk to a file conversion service, such as Burke 
Software. Burke converts MS-DOS (and other for¬ 
mat) data disks into AppleWorks formatted files. 

A number of NAUG members report they received 
excellent service from Burke Software. 

[Dr. Warren Williams teaches course in the Edu¬ 
cational Technology program at Eastern Michigan 
University. He is a technical advisor to NAUG, a 
frequent contributor to the AppleWorks Forum, 
and conducts AppleWorks seminars throughout 
the country.] 


The computer 
industry has 
adopted a 
standard coding 
scheme for data, 
AppleWorks, 
(and most 
MS-DOS 
programs) can 
read and write 
ASCII files.

Data Base Tip 


How to Handle 
9-Digit Zip Codes 

by Cathleen Merritt 


O ver the years, the United States Postal Service 
has adopted a number of practices that pur¬ 
portedly speed the flow of mail. One of the organi¬ 
zation’s ideas to improve mail service is called 
“Zip + 4”, the nine-digit zip code. While this code 
undoubtedly makes it easier to handle the mail, it 
increases the complexity of managing name and 
address records in an AppleWorks data base file. 

AppleWorks users face four problems when they 
use nine-digit zip codes: 

1. Once you enter a hyphen into a category, 

AppleWorks no longer recognizes the entry as a 
number. 

2. If some of your records have nine-digit codes 
and some have five-digit codes, it is difficult to 
arrange the records solely on the first five digits 
of their code. 

3. There are times when you want to print only the 
first five digits of the code. 

4. Some Postal Service classes of mail require you 
to sort the mail based on five-digit codes; others 
require sorting by nine-digit codes. 

Fortunately, these problems can be avoided if you 
establish two zip code categories for your data base 
file. (I call the categories “ZIP” and “ZIP+4”) 
Always enter the five-digit and four-digit codes 
into these two different fields. 

If you separate the codes into two categories and 
omit the hyphen, AppleWorks treats your entries as 
numeric data. That lets you sort the records by 
either the original zip code or by the expanded 
nine-digit code. In addition, you can choose 
whether to print just the first five digits or the com¬ 
plete nine-digit number. 


When you want to sort the records into zip code 
order, you must use a two-step process. First, 
arrange the records based on the ZIP+4 category. 
Then issue a second Arrange Command to sort the 
records based on the ZIP category. This procedure 
insures that records containing either five-digit or 
nine-digit codes are in the correct order. 

There is one problem with this system; it is not 
easy to get a hyphen between the two sets of num¬ 
bers. If you own version 2.0 or later of Apple- 
Works, you can insert that hyphen by using the 
Mail Merge module to print your output. However, 
I found a simpler solution; I leave the space blank 
between the two numbers and nobody seems to 
mind.

Word Processor Tip 


How to Print a Single Page 

by James Hirsch 


E ver try to print a single page with Apple Works? 

You put the cursor on the page you want to 
print, issue an Apple-P command, select “This 
Page” from the Print From? Menu, and Apple Works 
develops a life of its own ... printing from the cur¬ 
rent page to the end of the document. 

The problem is that the Print From? Menu specifies 
where printing should start, but does not tell 
AppleWorks where to stop. 

Here are two ways to get AppleWorks to print just 
a single page: 

Use the Pause Each Page Command 

One technique is to insert a Pause Each Page Com¬ 
mand at the beginning of the document. To issue a 
Pause Each Page Command, type an Apple-0 to go 
to the Options Menu, and then type PE. 

Then follow these steps: 

1. Issue an Apple-K command to tell AppleWorks 
to calculate the page breaks. (While this step is 
optional, AppleWorks sometimes prints the 
wrong page if you do not first issue an Apple-K 
command.) 

2. Either scroll to the page you want to print or use 
the Apple-F command to find that page. (If you 
use Apple-F, press the Up Arrow Key to scroll 
onto the page you want to print.) 

3. Issue an Apple-P command and indicate you 
want to start printing from the current page. 

4. AppleWorks will start to print the page and will 
prompt you to “Press Space Bar to continue”. 
Press the Space Bar if you want to print another 
page. Press the Escape Key to cancel the print¬ 
ing of additional pages. 

Use a “Single Page Printer” 

Another alternative is to add a second printer to the 
AppleWorks Printer Menu and define that printer 
so it automatically pauses at the end of each page. 


Follow these steps to add this “Single Page Printer” 
to your Printer Menu: 

1. At the Main Menu, select choice #5, “Other 
Activities”. 

2. At the Other Activities Menu, select choice #7, 
“Specify information about your printer(s)”. 

3. At the Printer Menu, indicate you want to add a 
printer to your system. Select the correct printer 
from the list and give the printer a name such as 
“Single Page”. 

4. At the Add a Printer Menu, change the default 
so “Pause at the end of each page” is set to 
“Yes”. 

You can now print a document as if you had insert¬ 
ed a Pause Each Page Command at the beginning 
of the file. Just select the “Single Page Printer” 
from the Printer Menu when you issue the Apple-P 
command. 

If you add a Single Page Printer to the Printer 
Menu, it’s easy to print an entire document. Leave 
the cursor anywhere in the document, issue an 
Apple-P command, respond to the Print From? 
Menu with the choice “This document”, and select 
the regular printer from the Printer Menu. 

A final suggestion: Sometimes you will find that 
AppleWorks starts printing on the page before the 
one you want to print. There are two ways to elimi¬ 
nate that problem: 

1. Issue an Apple-K command before issuing the 
Print Command. 

2. Put the cursor somewhere in the middle of the 
page you want to print before issuing the Print 
Command. 

Either of those approaches will get the correct page 
printed.

Macro Primer 


Getting Started 
with Macros — Part I 

by Mark Munz 


This is the first of a series of articles that describe how to use UltraMacros to enhance the 
power of AppleWorks. By the end of this first article, you should know the capabilities of 
UltraMacros and how to use its built-in commands and macros. Future articles will 
describe how to record your own macros, how to create and use Task Files, and how to use 
the programming language built into UltraMacros. 


A “macro” is defined in Webster’s New Colle¬ 
giate Dictionary as “a single computer instruc¬ 
tion that stands for a sequence of operations”. For 
example, it usually takes several keystrokes to tell 
AppleWorks to print a word processor document 
(Apple-P, RETURN, RETURN, RETURN). With a 
macro, a single keystroke combination (Solid- 
Apple-P) can perform the same job. 

Macros have two obvious advantages. First, they 
save keystrokes. You can tell AppleWorks to mem¬ 
orize any set of keystrokes and then “invoke” or 
“play back” that macro whenever you need those 
words or commands in your document. Second, 
macros speed up AppleWorks. Macros immediate¬ 
ly respond to AppleWorks questions and menus. 
There is no waiting for user input. 

Macro Programs for AppleWorks 

There are currently five programs that give you 
macro capabilities with AppleWorks. Pinpoint Pub¬ 
lishing’s KeyPlayer and Beagle Bros’ UltraMacros, 
AutoWorks and Super Macro Works modify Apple- 
Works and add macro capabilities directly to the 
program. DiversiKey, from Diversified Software 
Research, works only on the Apple IIgs, but adds 
macro capabilities to most text-based programs that 
run on that computer. DiversiKey does not modify 
AppleWorks and does not have all the power of 
UltraMacros, but DiversiKey also works with Mul¬ 
tiscribe, Bank Street Writer III, most spreadsheet 
programs, and other Apple II programs. 


Of the available alternatives, I favor UltraMacros. 
It is the most powerful of the programs and it 
offers a number of features not available with the 
other two alternatives. In this series of articles, I 
will refer specifically to UltraMacros, although 
some of the functions I will describe can be dupli¬ 
cated with the other programs. 

UltraMacros’ Additions to AppleWorks 

UltraMacros enhances AppleWorks in five ways: 

1. It adds new AppleWorks commands. 

2. It includes a set of built-in macros for Apple- 
Works. 

3. It gives AppleWorks the ability to memorize 
and replay any set of keystrokes you enter. 

4. It lets you create Task Files so you can auto¬ 
mate any task or set of operations. 

5. It offers a complete programming language so 
you can create menu-driven applications or 
automate complex tasks. 

This series of articles describes how to use each of 
these features of UltraMacros. 

UltraMacros and the Keyboard 

You can invoke these features like other Apple- 
Works commands because UltraMacros recognizes 
keystroke combinations that are typically ignored 
by AppleWorks.

oa-Delete 

Identical to sa-Delete command 

oa-: 

Converts character at cursor to uppercase 

oa-; 

Converts character at cursor to lowercase 

oa-! 

Summons insert cursor 

oa-@ 

Summons Zoom Out mode 

(formatting, formulas hidden) 

oa-ctrl-W 

Increments character at cursor 
(i.e.: “a” becomes “b”) 

oa-ctrl-A 

Decrements character at cursor 
(i.e.: “b” becomes “a”) 


As you might know, Apple Works does not differ¬ 
entiate between the Open-Apple and Solid-Apple 
keys. (On an Apple IIgs, the Option Key duplicates 
the function of the Solid-Apple Key on the Apple 
He and lie.) When you use “standard” Apple- 
Works, you can use the Open-Apple and Solid- 
Apple keys interchangeably; both keystrokes initi¬ 
ate the same commands. 

UltraMacros “teaches” Apple Works to differentiate 
between the Open-Apple and Solid-Apple key 
combinations. With UltraMacros installed, Open- 
Apple, Solid-Apple, and Both-Apple key combina¬ 
tions invoke different commands. In addition, 
UltraMacros recognizes Control-key combinations. 
Thus, each key on the Apple keyboard can be used 


to generate additional AppleWorks commands. 
Throughout this series of articles, I will use the 
abbreviations “oa-”, “sa-”, “ba-”, and “ctrl-” to 
designate Open-Apple, Solid-Apple, Both-Apple 
and Control-key keystrokes. 

Built-in Commands 

UltraMacros adds new commands to AppleWorks. 
For example, UltraMacros adds a Date Command. 
Once UltraMacros is installed, you can press sa-' 
and AppleWorks will immediately type the current 
date in the format “September 1, 1988”. Typing 
sa-" invokes the Date2 command, which types the 
date in the format “09/01/88”. 

Two other useful commands are the “UC” (Upper 
Case Convert) and “LC” (Lower Case Convert) 
commands. Once you install UltraMacros, you can 
put the cursor on any lower case letter and issue the 
Upper Case Convert command (oa-:). AppleWorks 
will replace that character with its upper case 
equivalent. Similarly, the LC command (oa-;) will 
convert an upper case letter into lower case. 

Figure 1 lists the commands UltraMacros adds to 
AppleWorks. 

Built-in Macros 

In addition to the built-in commands, UltraMacros 
includes a set of pre-defined macros that are auto¬ 
matically available when you enhance AppleWorks 
with UltraMacros. For example, sa-A invokes a 
macro that takes you to the Add Files Menu from 
anywhere within AppleWorks. Once you install 
UltraMacros, you can add a file to your desktop 
from anywhere in AppleWorks by pressing sa-A 
and selecting the file from the disk catalog. 

Figure 2 lists the macros built into UltraMacros. 
Additional information about each macro appears 
in the AppleWorks word processor file entitled 
“Macros Ultra” on the UltraMacros disk. 

Keystroke Macros 

The UltraMacros oa-X command adds another fea¬ 
ture to AppleWorks; the ability to record keystroke 
macros. When you press oa-X, UltraMacros starts 
memorizing each key you press. You can then 
define those keystrokes as a new macro and replay 
the keystrokes upon command.

You do not need to be able to 
program to use this valuable fea¬ 
ture of UltraMacros. You tell 
UltraMacros to memorize your 
keystrokes, do your work as usu¬ 
al, and tell the program to repeat 
those keystrokes upon command. 
I will describe how to capture, 
compile, replay, and save key¬ 
stroke macros in the next article 
in this series. 

Task Files 

Task Files are sets of macros you 
can use to perform a specific 
task. For example, you can set up 
a Task File that boots up Apple- 
Works, concatenates ten different 
spreadsheet files into a single 
file, prints that summary spread¬ 
sheet, saves the summary on disk, 
and quits AppleWorks. 

Although it’s easy to use a Task 
File, creating one requires some 
background. I will describe how 
to create Task Files later in this 
series. 

The Programming Language 

Unbeknownst to many Ultra- 
Macros users, UltraMacros also 
offers a true Pascal-like program¬ 
ming language. The language has 
its own set of variables, the capa¬ 
bility for loops, a powerful if- 
then-else logic command set, and 
other sophisticated features that 
are common to programming lan¬ 
guages, but are unusual in a 
macro program. 

The UltraMacros programming 
language supports more than 50 
commands. These are in addition 
to the standard AppleWorks com¬ 
mands already at your disposal. 
Two articles in this series will

describe the UltraMacros programming language 
and will teach you how to use that language. You 
will find that this powerful language will let you do 
spectacular things with AppleWorks. 

Conclusion 

My purpose in this article was to provide a quick 
introduction to UltraMacros. Now you should fol¬ 
low the directions on how to install TimeOut that 
appeared in the February 1988 issue of the Apple- 
Works Forum, and start to explore UltraMacros’s 
built-in commands and pre-programmed macros. 
Next month, I will describe how to record and play 
back customized keyboard macros.

Software Review 


TimeOut Thesaurus: An Easy 
Way to Find the Right Word 

by Marty Knight 


W riting, for me, is a ponderous task. The ideas 
are there ... but the right words often elude 
me. Now I get help from TimeOut Thesaurus, an 
Apple Works accessory that lets me locate the word 
that best conveys what I want to say. Thesaurus 
quickly gives me a list of synonyms; I no longer 
have to heft my dog-eared copy of Roget’s The¬ 
saurus from the reference shelf. With Thesaurus, I 
am always an Apple-Escape away from more than 
40,000 synonyms for the 5,000 most popular words 
in the English language. 

Requirements, Compatibility, and Installation 

Thesaurus is compatible with versions 2.0 and 2.1 of 
Apple Works. Although the program will work on a 
128K Apple with two 5.25-inch disk drives, I rec¬ 
ommend you have at least one 3.5-inch drive or a 
hard drive to make Thesaurus convenient. 

Installation of Thesaurus follows the pattern estab¬ 
lished for the other TimeOut modules. If TimeOut 
is not installed on your copy of AppleWorks, boot 
your computer with the Thesaurus disk and follow 
the on-screen directions. Complete installation 
instructions appeared in the February 1988 issue of 
the AppleWorks Forum. If TimeOut is already on 
your copy of AppleWorks, just copy the file 
TO.THESAURUS onto your TimeOut Applica¬ 
tions Disk. 

Once installed, you must boot up AppleWorks, 
invoke TimeOut, and use the TimeOut Utilities to 
tell Thesaurus where to locate its dictionary. 

Functionality and Features 

Thesaurus is easy to use. Place the cursor any¬ 
where on a word in a word processor document, 
press the Apple-Escape Key combination, and 
select Thesaurus from the TimeOut Menu. Figure 
1 depicts the Thesaurus screen that appears if the 


cursor is on the word “walking” when you invoke 
Thesaurus. 

Three lines of text, including the highlighted word, 
appear at the bottom of the screen so you can see 
the word in context. Thesaurus displays up to 30 
synonyms for the selected word. If there are more 
than 30 synonyms, Thesaurus displays the first 29; 
item 30 will be “More”. 

The suggested words are organized by parts of 
speech. Nouns, verbs, pronouns, adjectives, ad¬ 
verbs, and conjunctions are all presented in clearly 
defined separate lists. You can use the TimeOut 
Utilities to redefine these labels. 

You select a replacement word from the display by 
moving the highlight to the word or by typing its 
number and pressing the Return Key. Thesaurus 
automatically replaces the word, and reformats 
your document if necessary. 

You can also use Thesaurus to help you think of 
synonyms for words you have not yet entered into 
a document. Put the cursor on any empty space, 
invoke the Thesaurus, and the program will prompt 
you to enter a word from the keyboard. Thesaurus 
then displays suggested synonyms. Any synonym 
you select is inserted at the cursor position and 
your document is reformatted to accommodate the 
new word. 

If Thesaurus cannot find the word you want in its 
synonym dictionary, it drops any suffix to the word 
and attempts to find a synonym for the root word. 

If you select one of Thesaurus’ synonyms for the 
root word, the program automatically adds the suf¬ 
fix to the synonym and asks you to verify the 
spelling of the proposed word. Thesaurus uses a 
complex algorithm to handle suffixes; the program 
usually suggests the correct synonyms and 
spellings for the final words. However, Thesaurus

assumes it knows how to spell the 
suffixed word correctly. It does not 
give you an opportunity to change 
the spelling of the suffix before the 
word is entered into your document. 

If the first list of suggested words 
does not include one that is close to 
your intended meaning, you can 
highlight any word on the list and 
press Open-Apple-Retum. Thesaurus 
will display a list of synonyms for 
the new word. You can use Open- 
Apple-Return up to eight times to 
help you locate the most suitable 
synonym. 

The number of words in the synonym 
dictionary depends on the size of the 
disk you use. The 5.25-inch disk 
includes approximately 43,000 syn¬ 
onyms for the 5,000 most common 
root words. The 3.25-inch disk 
includes approximately 46,000 synonyms for the 
same number of root words. 

Performance 

Thesaurus does an excellent job of suggesting rea¬ 
sonable synonyms for your words; not surprising 
when you consider it is based on the Random 
House Thesaurus, a recognized reference work. In 
addition, the program is fast. It took 20 seconds for 
Thesaurus to suggest 23 synonyms for the word 
“walking” when I stored the Thesaurus program on 
a RAM disk and the dictionary on a 5.25-inch flop¬ 
py disk. The program runs faster if you have a 3.5- 
inch disk drive or a hard disk drive. 

Documentation 

Thesaurus comes with one 5.25-inch disk, one 3.5- 
inch disk, and a 40-page manual that includes both 
a Table of Contents and an Index. The manual is 
adequate. Fortunately, Thesaurus is easy to config¬ 
ure and easy to use. 

Support 

You can get help using Thesaurus from a number 
of sources. Beagle Bros’ technical support line 
answers questions during regular working hours. 


Unfortunately, the line is frequently busy, but the 
technical support staff proved familiar with the 
program when I finally got through. 

Beagle Bros also maintains a 24-hour bulletin 
board system and is available on-line in the Indus¬ 
try Connection of AppleLink-Personal Edition. 
Thesaurus owners can also get free technical sup¬ 
port from NAUG’s Members Helping Members 
volunteers or on the NAUG bulletin board. 

Conclusion 

Thesaurus is an excellent enhancement for anyone 
who does serious writing with AppleWorks. The 
program frees you from the drudgery of looking up 
words in a printed thesaurus. Its speed and ease of 
use will encourage you to find the most appropriate 
words as you write. TimeOut Thesaurus should 
help improve your writing.

Some AppleWorks owners still don’t have TimeOut! 



If you’ve ever wished you could do more with 
AppleWorks, like check your spelling lightning fast, 
print out your files with great looking Macintosh 
fonts, graph a spreadsheet to get your point across, 
use your mouse, create a powerful macro to automate 
your work and save time, print your wide spread¬ 
sheets sideways so they’ll fit on the page, copy files 
and disks, use really powerful desk accessories, and 
do it all without ever having to leave AppleWorks, 
then you need one or more of our original TimeOut

Word Processor Tip 

How to Get Multi-Line Headers 

by Mark Munz 


AppleWorks can automatically put a one-line “header” at the top of every page in a word 
processor document. In this article, Mark Munz describes how to overcome this one-line 
limitation and produce multi-line headers. You need TimeOut UltraMacros to implement 
these procedures. 


A “header” consists of text that is automatically 
printed at the top of every page of a word pro¬ 
cessor document. In a book, a header typically 
includes the name of the chapter and the page num¬ 
ber. In a letter, the header usually includes the name 
of the addressee, the date, and the page number. 

The AppleWorks word proces¬ 
sor module has a command that 
can automatically put a header 
on the top of each page. You 
invoke the header command by 
going to the Options Menu 
(Apple-O) and entering the let¬ 
ters “PH” for “Page Header”. 

The line of text immediately 
below the Page Header Com¬ 
mand will print at the top of the 
next page and at the top of all 
the following pages. You can 
change the header at any point 
in your document by issuing a 
new PH command. AppleWorks 
even has the ability to automati¬ 
cally insert correct page num¬ 
bers in the header. [Ed: See the 
articles entitled “How to Print 
Page Headers” in the July and 
August 1987 issues of the 
AppleWorks Forum for infor¬ 
mation about how to get auto¬ 
matic page numbering in 
AppleWorks.] 

Unfortunately, AppleWorks lim¬ 
its the header to a single line. But 
here is a macro that adds multi¬ 


line header capabilities to AppleWorks. You will 
need TimeOut UltraMacros to use this technique. 

How the Macro Works 

To use the macro, enter a multiple line header as 
text at the beginning of the document. When you

Word Processor 
Tip ... 

invoke the macro, the program 
asks how many lines you want in 
the header and then copies that 
many lines from the beginning of 
the file onto the Apple Works clip¬ 
board. Next, the macro uses the 
Copy Command to place this 
header at the top of every page. 

There is one significant disadvan¬ 
tage to using this procedure to put 
multiple-line headers in your doc¬ 
ument. The macro changes the 
text in your document by copying 
the multiple line header onto the 
top of each page. If you save the 
document with these headers and 
ever want to edit the file, you will 
have to remove all the headers, 
make the editing changes, then re¬ 
run the macro. 

You can avoid this problem by 
saving the file on a data disk 
before running the macro. Then 
run the macro and print the docu¬ 
ment. Do not save the modified 
file on your disk; you already have 
a complete copy of the file without 
the headers. When you want to 
edit the document, bring the origi¬ 
nal file from your disk onto the 
desktop, make your editorial 
changes, save the revised docu¬ 
ment, and re-run the macro. 

Like all programs, Apple Works 
has its limitations. But it is inter¬ 
esting to watch third party 
enhancements like UltraMacros 
challenge those limits.

QuickTip 

How to Prevent 
Apple Mgs 

Lock-Ups 

by A. J. Weiss 


When loading Apple Works into my Apple IIgs, 
the computer occasionally locks up at the 
screen that says “Getting Started” at the top. 
Members Helping Members volunteer Jim Sul- 
sona solved the problem. He told me to shut off 
my ImageWriter II or press the “Select” button 
on the printer and the computer unlocked with¬ 
out rebooting Apple Works. 

I don’t know how often I’ve rebooted my com¬ 
puter when Apple Works locked like this, but no 
longer. Now I just press the “Select” button on 
the ImageWriter and I can continue working.. 

[A. J. Weiss uses AppleWorks to manage the 
mailing list for his boating club, and for his 
personal bookkeeping. Mr. Weiss lives in Sara¬ 
sota, Florida.] 


Protect Your Privacy 

by Jim Carlisle 


You can quickly hide your AppleWorks 
screen from a curious onlooker by pressing 
the Escape Key. A second press of the Escape 
Key usually brings back your screen when 
you are ready.

SpreadTools: Useful Tools for 
the Spreadsheet User 

by Dave Gair 


S preadTools, the latest addition to the TimeOut 
series of AppleWorks enhancements from Bea¬ 
gle Bros, is a collection of tools that add useful fea¬ 
tures to the AppleWorks spreadsheet. The Spread- 
Tools modules were written by Alan Bird, Dan 
Verkade, and Randy Brandt. 

The SpreadTools modules include: 

Analyst: A spreadsheet auditor that checks for 
potential errors in the logic of a spreadsheet, (e.g., 
circular cell references), generates a cross-refer¬ 
ence list that shows which cells refer to other cells, 
displays an entire spreadsheet in compressed form, 
and automatically sets the width of a column to the 
widest entry in that column. 

Block Copy: Copies any block of cells within a 
spreadsheet or to the clipboard for transfer to other 
spreadsheets. (Unenhanced AppleWorks cannot 
copy blocks of cells.) 

CelLink: Imports cell values into a summary 
spreadsheet from other spreadsheets on the desktop 
or from AppleWorks data disks. One summary 
spreadsheet can import data from up to 35 different 
spreadsheets. CelLink makes it easier to use the 
AppleWorks spreadsheet module to produce com¬ 
plex reports. 

Data Converter: Transfers word processor infor¬ 
mation into spreadsheet-formatted data and trans¬ 
fers data between the AppleWorks spreadsheet and 
data base modules. This is an enhanced version of 
the Data Converter module on the DeskTools, 
Graph, and UltraMacros disks. 

FormulaToValue: Converts a calculated value in 
a cell into a constant. FormulaTo Value lets you 
compute an entry in a cell one month and “lock in” 
that value so it doesn’t change in future months. 


QuickColumns: Changes column widths. Allows 
designation of a repeating pattern of column 
widths. For example, if you highlight six columns 
and enter “8,2” as the column widths, the first col¬ 
umn will be set eight characters wide, the second 
column two characters wide, the third column eight 
characters wide, and so on. 

Rows <—> Cols: Copies any column to a row or 
any row to a column. 

SpreadTools will be introduced by Beagle Bros at 
AppleFest in San Francisco later this month. The 
program costs $59.95.
